Columbia 26 MK l
 
Hi All,

Has anyone here ever owned or crewed on one of these? If so, what was your impression?

I know,... you're asking yourself if I could possibly be more vague. I got one very inexpensively and before I put out money on a survey, I'd like to know if it's a dog no matter what I do to fix it up.

Columbia had (has?) a good name but the internet seems a little shy on info on the MK l.

Thanks,

Frank

FYI, the original Columbia 26 was simply that, a Columbia 26 (or, C-26). I owned hull no. 52 back in the 90s and loved it. Rock solid S.O.B. that was over built and tracked like it was on rails eith it's cutaway, semi-full keel.

Thanks JB.

Where did you find the hull number?

I've looked around the mast/compression post area, in lockers and everywhere else I can think of.

Hi Frank,

I was lucky in that, besides the 30 on the original mainsail, there's a bronze plate were the rudder post passes through the cockpit. As you can see, the plaque doesn't even say Columbia — as I understand it, they changed there name from Glastron Plastics to Columbia that year!

Oh, and I've discovered the sailboat's original name, Pandora, on the CYOA website.

Sorry, that info concerned my current Columbia, a C24 this time.

If I remember correctly, there was a 52 on the main...
